Here is a song I have been playing for quite awhile on did not realize I hadn't posted on Soundcloud.

It was done for one of our dogs that has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. She is deeply missed.

Gorgeous playing Scott. Really heart felt. Eric would be proud. You know your way around a Strat.

There`s a lot of feeling in your playing. A wonderful, melancholy tribute to the Little Lady.
I really enjoyed the wah wah sections which I haven`t heard you use before.

A beautiful and mournful tune lamenting the loss of your little lady.

I love all of the guitar tones. The Wah really evokes a feeling of sadness and even the non-Wah is soft and sombre.

Good job.

Nice playing on this, very smooth and melodic. Tele sounds sweet! I like the wha-wha track too.

We've had two over the years that crossed that bridge. What a great tribute!
David said it know your way around a Strat.

The wah wah was perfect for the song.

It was nice to know the song's inspiration and we much enjoyed the
fine playing and production.

Nice, Scott. Feels like a "song of remembrance".

Well played. Bit of a Clapton feel there.

My new favorite from you. Really nice...

Hello, Scott

What a melancholic tune.
As Janice and Bud said, the wah wah was perfect for the song.
I don't Know why, but the wah wah was heard to my ears like the dogs were crying.
Much enjoyed your fine playing.

Best Regards.

your little lady probably chased my studio-cat across that bridge. frown
They leave a hole and this was perfectly filled with this sombre song. Nice Wahwah, it does sound like crying.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on the song. I am glad you enjoyed the song. The two girls would come downstairs to the studio and sometimes join in while I was recording. :-). The mic would pick them up letting me know it was time for a walk. :-)

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

Band-in-a-Box® Customer Feedback - Feel The Love!

Check out some great feedback we've received on our Facebook account from program users:

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!
